Bellafill is a safe, FDA-approved, microsphere-enhanced collagen filler designed to produce long-lasting correction of nasolabial folds (the lines which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth). It is also the dermal liquid filler used to treat acne scarring. Unlike temporary dermal fillers which require repeat injections every three to nine months to maintain results, Bellafill contains unique microspheres which are not absorbed by the body over time. Once injected, these microspheres provide the skin with the necessary support structure to produce smooth, natural, long-lasting results.
Bellafill is an ideal solution for the nasolabial folds. Once injected by facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Berkowitz, the collagen contained within Bellafill produces an immediate, visible correction of the wrinkle. As the collagen eventually diminishes, the microspheres take over to provide the necessary support structure beneath the skin for continued, lasting improvement. The procedure takes just minutes to complete and is performed with an anesthetic to minimize discomfort.
Thousands of people use Bellafill treatments as a solution to acne scarring. Bellafill provides a beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts. Bellafill is approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years. Bellafill immediately adds volume below pitted acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.
Side effects are minimal and patients are able to immediately return to their normal activities. As with any injectable filler, mild swelling or redness may occur. These side effects generally fade within twenty-four hours of leaving our suburban Detroit office. Rarely, mild bruising may occur for three to seven days. Results are immediate with continued improvement occurring over time.
Depending on the depth of the wrinkle, fold or acne scar, one to two treatments may be required. Studies have shown results remaining in patients for up to five years after treatment.
